Sylvan Beach to Brewerton

When we left Sylvan Beach we were waiting to hear of the locks to Oswego were open yet. They said today, but no official news had be published. But then we left around 7:30 in the morning, so that was no surprise.

As predicted the wind was almost zero, which made crossing Lake Oneida easy. We got to open up the engines a bit, and for about 10 minutes we traveled at nearly 12 knots. Quite a rush! To y'all that's just over 15 mph. Hey, no judging!

Nice day to cross the lake
We'd been warned that gas in Canada was expensive so we tanked up at a marina here. We also filled our water and pumped-out, getting ready for the next trip northward. And that's when we heard, not today and probably not tomorrow. Yep, the locks remain closed. This was due to the water levels being too high, and to make matters worse, the forecast for the next 5 days say -- you betcha! -- rain.

We may be here a while.
